People who really love their cats keep them at home where they are safe. There are lots of things to injure a loose cat and if people leave their cats outside, the cat is at risk of injury or death of some sort. I don't feel any need to take over responsibility for the care and safety of a cat when the cat's own owner doesn't care what happens to it.

No, the court will not find for the owner of a cat that’s trespassing. I agree with the mothballs, however, they will kill wildlife. The only really good methods are:

Lots of thorny branches all over the ground
Or
Scarecrow water sprayer

Are you sure that the judge would not find in favor of the cat owner ? I don't want to take that chance really , so I will let to each their own but you just never know with judges these days and courts too . I know here in our county if you feed the strays they are considered yours and you are responsible for whatever they do . just another reason I will not retire here . When times comes I will sell my house and move to another state .
